I personally use writing for this. Specifically, I will choose a topic, then sit down and write an article. During the course of writing I will often need a word that is not part of my active vocabulary, so I will look it up in Pleco. At that point I will come across 10+ variations of that word in Chinese, but my passive knowledge will tell me which of them is most appropriate. Then, after writing the word a couple of times in a few different contexts it seems to transition to my active vocabulary. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
